Eyes are the vital organ of the body as it is the sense organ of the body. But sometimes eyes get diseased with conditions like glaucoma. Glaucoma can lead to a loss of vision if it is not treated. If you have an increased pressure within eye but without any damage to the optic nerve, this is called ocular hypertension. People who are having ocular hypertension have an increased risk of later developing glaucoma.

These conditions should be treated well with eye drops like Bimatoprost which helps to reduce eye pressure in people with ocular hypertension and to prevent further eye damage with glaucoma Bimatoprost eye drops work by increasing the amount of fluid that drains out of your eye, which reduces the pressure. More than one type of eye drop is needed to keep low pressure in the eye. Bimatoprost is availbale as a combination eye drop with a beta-blocker called timolol. The medication comes as a solution to instill in the eye. The medication is usually instilled in the affected eye once a day in the evening. Always try to take the medication at around the same time every day.

Bimatoprost controls glaucoma and ocular hypertension but does not cure them. Continue to use Bimatoprost eye drops even you are feeling well.
